La Cieca hears that Rolando Villazón, who recently canceled his Salzburg Festival appearances citing “long-term illness” (“einer längerfristigen Erkrankung”), may pull out of the Met’s fall revival of Roméo et Juliette as well. The tenor is scheduled for five performances of the Gounod opera between September 25 and October 11, followed by another four in December. Matthew Polenzani has already been announced for the final two performances of the run including the New Year’s Eve gala. The matinee performance of Saturday, December 15 is scheduled for HD simulcast with Villazón and Anna Netrebko.
